Taming a Wild Scot by Rowan Keats
Narrator: Kirsten Potter
Length: 8 hrs and 40 mins
Date Read: January 2015
Genre: Historical, Romance
In the Highlands of Scotland, plays for power are fought without rules, treachery and intrigue hold court, and, in one woman’s heart, danger stirs as relentlessly as passion...
Wrongfully accused of murder and left to die in a hellish Highland dungeon, Ana Bisset has lost all hope of freedom. But the beautiful healer’s luck takes an unexpected turn when a hooded stranger appears as her rescuer. After a harrowing escape, Ana settles alone in a quiet village where no one knows her past or her reputation. The last thing she ever expects is to meet her mysterious savior again...
Niall MacCurran is no hero, but a warrior on a dangerous mission to expose a threat to the realm. After his decision to free Ana, he now realizes that it is he who needs her help—willing or no—to advance his quest. But his growing feelings for the delicate yet resilient beauty soon jeopardize their safety—and not even Ana’s healing gifts may be enough to protect their love, or their lives.

First Thought when Finished: Taming a Wild Scot by Rowan Keats was a solid story with spectacular characters. I will be continuing with this series!
Quick Story Thoughts: Prison breaks, stolen jewels, murder, witchcraft claims, strong-willed leading ladies, stubborn ass leading men, and a clan of Scottish men=WIN! While I thought the story was a little rushed in places and slow in others, overall it was well executed. My only complaint was that I thought the love story could have been stronger but it was still delightful. The ending was a little rushed but alas I always want the couple to have more time.
Quick Character Thoughts: Here is where Rowan Keats shined: I LOVED the bloody bunch of them! From beginning to end the characters were compelling, engaging, funny, and well-rounded. I can’t wait to see what is in store for them to come.
Narrated By Kirsten Potter / Length: 8 hrs and 40 mins
I am a HUGE fan of Kirsten Potter and her historical romance narrations. She totally nailed the different accents, pacings, and attitudes of the characters. She shined as Ana!
Final Thoughts: Need to get my hands on the next one 🙂
